Overview

The Threshold Aluminum offers race-ready performance in an affordable package. A premium double-butted aluminum frame shares the same race-proven geometry and compliance technology as the Threshold Carbon, but adds additional rack and fender mounts for increased versatility. Fast, fun and ready for muddy mayhem, the Threshold Aluminum is the perfect bike for any rider looking to get down and dirty at their first cross race.

The toughest riders don’t shy away from harsh weather: they embrace it. Rain, wind, sand and mud? Bring it on. No one said bike racing was supposed to be easy.
